No, he didn't hit me!

This is what I said to the neighbor that ran into me at the drugstore. He asked me if Phil beat me, and I could tell he was joking. Or maybe he really wondered. Maybe I would have laughed if my eye wasn't so painful.
Anyway, I have some sort of eye infection. My doctor sent me to the opthamologist. They think I may have some sort of viral conjunctivitis because my daugher has had some kind of cold the last few days. However, the doctor isn't totally sure. I am using prescription eye drops for the next couple days every 3 hours and over the counter eye drops as much as I want. He wants me to keep cold cloths on top of my eye to help with the swelling. I'm supposed to go back in 2 days to see if that treatment is working. I'm typing with one eye open right now because my other one really hurts!!!! The good news is my cornea isn't infected which is good as a contact lens wearer. He told me not to wear my contacts. I laughed and said, "I don't think I could get it in if I tried!" I'm not sure what to do to relax. Maybe listen to music?

It looks terrible. Hope you are feeling better soon. Did you get my message I sent you on facebook?

Just a note about the eye. The yellow stuff you see is not part of the infection. The doctor put yellow colored drops in my eye and it took awhile for all of the yellow to leak out.
